I think Gene would love the "spirit" of the movie. To engaged today's movie goers, it has to be "flashy" but still manage hold within it the core of Star Trek. Life is change, perhaps Gene would not go to some of the more extreme settings, who ready knows? But to have some of the hard core members(Leonard Nimoy)involved help alot. I enjoy this movie as much as any I seen, I am a long time fan, from the beginning, the first tv series of Star Trek.
